In 2009, IGN chose the 7800 to be their 17th best video game console of all time. They justified this relatively low ranking...

The Princess has been kidnapped by King Koopa (again) and it's up to Mario and Luigi to save her (again). Not to be confused with the western SMB2 , this sequel to SMB  is very much an expansion to the original, with many reused graphics and concepts, though new ones are also present. Instead of offering a two-player mode as in the original, this game allows you to choose between a Mario mode and a Luigi mode, with each character handling differently. Mario has tighter ground control, while...
